That's the truth. You can't hang in that league after sitting two seasons while being a thug punk. It's a shame really. Maybe if he was drafted by a team who took off-field problems in a serious manner it wouldn't have gotten this far. But this is the price you pay when you draft these type of guys in the first place and then turn around and give them leniency.

I've said it a hundred times. That franchise is a joke and will remain a joke as long as they continue on this path. Draft all the troubled talent you want, it doesn't mean a damn thing if they can't stay out of trouble for longer than two years or even two months.

Another Bengal suspension or 2 and Marvin Lewis is going to be calling Goodell out for profiling.

Of course, when you lack leadership ability, blame others. It worked for Gen. Braxton Bragg. If I were Goodell I would simply print out the 'book' of arrests and other incidents involving players on that team over the years and tell Marvin to read it front to back. Hell, one player on that roster has a rap sheet longer than the rap sheets of all the inmates housed in San Quentin combined.

Sadly, some of the Bengal fans on the net are basically doing that now...

Go google this story, and then read the posts underneath them.

Which, of course, should surprise no one.

Anything to win, right Bengal fans?

Here was a particularly choice comment:

Quote:
We have people like Pacman Jones and Michael Vick in the league who have done far worse things, and yet, Odell Thurman takes the beating. He's served his time, and he hasn't done anything wrong since being suspended! He was reapplying for reinstatement at the wrong time with the Vick scandal at the forefront. Roger Goodell is an idiot. Shame on you!
Yep, it's all Vick's fault now.

Here's another great one:

Quote:
Goodell is not welcome in Cincinnati and i hope more NFL scandals (ala NBAs referee scandal) are on the horizon to make his life miserable.

That's a classy comment. Let's hope that the league becomes crooked and soaked with refs on the take because our organization is pure scum from the top on down. Way to keep up that reputation of being great football fans Cincinnati.

Thank God I don't live in that city.

If you talk to Marvin Lewis...He thinks the police profile his players...Maybe he now thinks the league does too?
